Product Details

Description

A karesansui is a Japanese rock garden which is an enclosed shallow sandbox containing sand, gravel, and rocks. The main elements are rocks and sand, with the sea symbolized not by water but by sand raked in patterns that suggest rippling water. This short work, for an interchangeable woodwind ensemble and optional percussion, is peaceful, reflective, and accessible to audiences. The major pentatonic scale is used as the basis for this composition, which creates an interesting texture and evokes the sound of an ancient Japanese folk song.
